haha!!! Just kidding... but those dudes are super inspirational to us!!!

So here's the story. 2 weeks ago, me and my partner Pat from Chicago took a photography trip to NYC. Our main goal was to get some GREAT photos, do mad photo shoots, build our portfolios and crack mad jokes!!! And we accomplished that. I contacted a bunch of my peeps down there and ended up with 9 photo shoots in 3 days! We'll be posting those in the coming days!!!

So this shoot here... I contacted the bride (who's a friend of mine) and asked if her and her husband wanted to do a couples shoot? I was thinking somewhere along the lines of an engagement style shoot. She tells me that she hated her wedding pics and still has her dress... So we decided to do a wedding shoot. Now, since I live in Toronto and Pat lives in Chicago, we wanted our photos to include some famous NYC landmarks. So we shot at DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Brooklyn Overpass).

Pat and I both shot. When I was shooting, Pat would assist with holding the softbox, and vice versa. Having a lighting assistant (who knows what they're doing) is KEY!!!!!! It makes a HUGE difference.

Here's a rundown of our gear we used for this shoot

-Canon 5D Mark 2
-Canon 7D
-Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
-Canon 135mm f/2.0L
-Canon 24mm f/1.4L
-Canon 430EXII Speedlite
-Canon 580EX Speedlite
-Westcott 28x28 Apollo Softbox

Here are my photos from the shoot

^^^^ What he said LoL. But seriously, I cannot stress how invaluable having an assistant is! I don't know how I managed before LoL.

We had an amazing time in New York. We cracked so jokes but we worked extremely hard to do whatever it took to get "the shot".

P.S. We saw several engagement shoots going on in the same area. I was surprised to see so many people using on camera flash exclusively. It's not necessarily a bad thing, just surprising.

Here is my contribution to the shoot :)
